Markus Huemer, Erwin Wurm

Land der Berge



Markus Huemer's and Erwin Wurm's works are not imitations of real landscapes and mountains, but they rather refer to their geographical maps, meaning our imaginations of landscapes and mountains. With a computer Huemer calculates geometric formations which he transforms into mountain paintings in grisaille technique. Wurm modulates and models clay in a tactile way according to the random principle. The result is cast in bronze and the spectator is tempted to imagine this as natural forms, such as mountains, breasts, etc. The paintings and sculptures are miniatures in proportion to the size of our imagination.
